New Website Launched Today

Hello Everyone

Not sure exactly why the term "launched" is used when we have no champagne, not even virtual champagne.

Hope you will take some time to check our new website out. Everything that is on this site has been moved to the new site and can be found in the archives section. 

Great credit to all who worked so hard on this site - we salute and thank you. 

Yes.... We have moved....  New website 

Our technical staff have been working hard to make it as good a website as it can be, but we do welcome your feedback.
